It is time to celebrate one of the longest running German-American exchange programs: Tufts in Tübingen is turning 50 and we are planning to give the program and everyone who was/is part of it the celebration it deserves.

Please share your stories/memories of your time in Tübingen on our Facebook page, or send as an email: What are the first three "things" (locations/people/smells/...) that come to mind when you hear "Tübingen"? We would love to hear from you!
